Kevlar High Temperature Heat Flame Resistant Sewing Thread:
Meeting A-A-55220 & Mil-T-87128
Kevlar« thread is used extensively in the manufacture of protective clothing due to its resistance to chemicals and heat. Kevlar« thread has the highest specific strength of any commercially available fibre and, should an article be reinforced with Kevlar«, it does not break instantly but progressively, providing a non-catastrophic failure mode allowing a margin of safety.
This innovative thread is also light and its strength to weight ratio makes it five times as strong as steel.
Kevlar« thread has good thermal stability and retains a high percentage of room temperature properties even up to 300║C after one to two hours exposure in air. It does not melt, or support combustion, but will oxidize at 400-430║C. However, at temperatures as low as 196║C Kevlar« shows no loss of strength.
Kevlar« thread is an excellent resistor to chemicals and is unaffected by exposure to solvents, fuels, lubricants and salt water. Exposed Kevlar« can be affected by exposure to UV light but this is to the outer layer only and is not progressive.
Kevlar thread is available meeting A-A-55220 & Mil-T-87128.
